River & Trail Outfitters Uncorks Fun Flavorful Paddle
and Wine Tasting Tours in Northern Virginia’s Wine
Country with a Concert to Boot!
River & Trail Outfitters offers outdoor enthusiasts with a thirst for
wine and music the ultimate fun multi-adventure day of kayaking or
canoeing on the Potomac River, followed by wine tasting and live
music at Loudoun County Virginia’s top-rated Tarara Winery.
River & Trail Outfitters has teamed up with
Tarara Winery, named “Best
Winery in Loudoun County” for eight consecutive years, to create the
ultimate fun multi-adventure day for outdoor enthusiasts with a thirst
for paddling and performing.
The stress-busting triathlon of sensory goodness kicks off with a
guided 4.5-to-7 mile mellow kayaking or canoeing tour down the
gently flowing Potomac River, known for its wealth of wildlife and
water birds, such as Blue Herons, Wild Ducks, and an occasional
Bald Eagle spotting. Upon arriving at the winery near Leesburg,
Virginia, which parallels the Potomac, Paddle, Wine & Concert invigorated paddlers chill out during a festive concert, while enjoying
their choice of tasty picnic fare. Tarara's featured wines are available for purchase by the glass or the bottle.
The day wraps up on the winery’s meticulously manicured 475-
acre farm savoring live music under the starry night. Our special October 18th Paddle & Wine includes a private wine tasting and complimentary bottle of wine.
“We wanted to create a fun, relaxing trip that let’s people unplug
while enjoying the serene natural beauty and the delicious wines
being crafted from the surrounding land” says Natasha Baihly, who
